On going

So when we last heard from our heroes (that would be me and D) they had one ripped up kitchen. Let's see what has happened since then.

Ah yes the decision that requires home work, new paint color selection.

I don't want to give away any spoilers but it is safe to assume the bigger color splotch is the color we liked best. The other one was a bit yellow and totally fades into nothingness in my opinion.

We had the old fluorescent light fixture removed.

And covered over. No more weird flickering light for us!

You can see the recessed lighting installed and the paint has gone up. Don't our old fridge and stove look especially pathetic sitting in the middle of the room?

However Jack always looks at the good in any situation. Especially when it includes big cardboard boxes for him to sit on. Why yes my home is in total chaos!

Well it looks like the recessed lighting is properly placed.

And since the boxes had disappeared, Jack found new ways to get into trouble.

Not bad for a little old man that is not quite as old as his elderly brother, Gus.

Check back again as our kitchen saga continues. You do all know there will be a big delay in posting the final pictures? I'm gonna bake my brains out for a couple of weeks once the kitchen is done. Ooh pictures of my baking on the new pretty counter tops. Oh I can barely wait! I've already pulled out my copy of King Arthur's Flour Baker's Companion and marked pages for testing. I am so going to make pineapple upside down cake, finally. I don't even know if I will like it, but I'm gonna try it.


  1. Pineapple upside-down cake is tasty... though, I admit that I haven't had it in years.

    I'm loving it so far! Can't wait to see it finished, but I totally understand the break in-game period. I would be baking until I ran out of flour!

    1. I think my limiting factor will be eggs. Of course bread takes way more flour than eggs. Guess I will be testing that theory.

      I am mostly looking forward to having scone weekends again.
